The Nehemiah Brainerd House and Laurel Cottage guest house are situated in the Haddam Historic District on five acres on a bluff above the Connecticut River. Located only five minutes from the historic Goodspeed Opera House, a short distance from Gillette Castle State Park, the Essex Steam Train, the historic town of Essex and less than an hour from the LARGEST CASINOS in the world, as well as a number of world class outlet stores. Theres no end to the shopping, attractions, antiques, gourmet dining and sightseeing.Close to HARTFORD, NEW HAVEN, OLD SAYBROOK, MIDDLETOWN and a very short drive to MYSTIC with its aquarium and historic seaport. Centered between New York and Boston and accessible by train via the Old Saybrook station.
